    Hi everyone..

    I just purchased the Evo.. I was wondering if there is anyway I can hide an album in my pictures. If anyone knows, please explain it to me.

    Also, are there any smileys I can use in my texts??

    Create a blank file called .nomedia and put it inside the folder you want to hide. This should hide that folder and any folders under it from the gallery.

    actually if you put a "." before any directory it should hide it from the gallery. the "." signifies a system directory and the gallery doesnt look for it. IRC.

    just dont forget to delete any thumbs file that is in the directory you hide

    You can view them if you use a file system browser such as astro

    If you are creating a file from your desktop and copy it to your phone, from the desktop, you must name the file as ".nomedia." (without quotes). Without the period at the end you will get the error "You must type a file name".
